Fall Out Boy have been forced to cancel their trip to Antarctica, despite making every attempt to get to the continent.

After bad weather prevented the band from making the trip on the scheduled date on Tuesday (March 25), they looked to a special plane, which can land in adverse weather conditions.

The ‘Hercules’ plane “has four propellers and is used for take-offs and landings in conditions with bad runways and bad weather,” bassist Pete Wentz wrote on his blog.

But even the ’Hercules’ could not defeat the bad weather, leading to the cancellation of the trip which would have seen the band break a world record for having played on every continent.

"It's an utter f---ing disappointment. ... It's so insane. We had this idea, and then to not be able to fulfill it is just disappointing, especially when you put it out there. But what are you gonna do, wait until winter's over?" Wentz told MTV.com.

As previously reported, the band were to be joined by an official from the Guinness Book Of World Records for the trip, which they were making with Greenpeace.

Speaking from Chile, around two hours from Antartica, frontman Patrick Stump said: "I'm sure 'Guinness' won't ever return our phone calls again, I'm sure a lot of people are going to laugh at us, but the fun thing is I'll be laughing with them, because it's pretty funny that we made it all the way down to Chile. And we got really freaking far. It's still pretty cool. If we lost, and our name is never in some book for breaking some record, it's still pretty freaking cool."

it be even better if they did make it, but the plane crashed trying to land, and they all died....or even better, if those guys were in the mexican emo brawl and died.... all in all, a good day.

Shame we can't have an Antarctic music fest. Sigur Ros would be amazing on a glacier!

I STILL don't understand why people hate them so much. They are too average to hate.

It'd be neat to see a show in Antarctica dance with some penguins

A few of the scientists that live there formed a band and played, but they haven't played on all the other continents.
